Overview of the Project
Nepal's natural resources—particularly its forests—deteriorate more each day due to the nation’s high dependency on natural resources. There is also lack of awareness amongst the local population regarding the negative effects of deforestation. Global Crossroad’s Conservation Project is designed to support Nepal’s indigenous species conservation efforts by offering free tree seedlings for planting and teaching people the importance of conservation.
Role of Volunteer
Our conservation nursery project is located in the rural village of Chitwan. As a volunteer in Nepal, you will prepare nursery beds, sow seeds, weed, trim, prune, and thin various indigenous tree species. The planted seedlings grown and nurtured by our volunteers are later distributed at no charge to villages in other parts of Nepal. Depending on the season, additional tasks may include like planting, collecting seeds, replanting, eliminating diseased trees and inventorying fauna and flora.
